Mike's Blog Round Up
June 11, 2014

Echidne of the Snakes: The Washington Post opinion page slutshames itself for the second time in a week.

Hullabaloo: If upheld, court decision in California’s Vergara case could decimate teacher unions--and public education.

Prairie Weather: Republican voter suppression in Ohio in black and white.

The Hinterland Gazette: Hillary Clinton says she refused Obama/Biden requests to attack Sarah Palin during the 2008 election.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“When I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism or, you know, maybe a sharper microscope put on her, I think, man, that doesn't do us any good. Women in politics, women in general wanting to progress this country. I don't think it's, it bodes well for her -- a statement like that...It bothers me a little bit hearing her bring that attention to herself on that level” (Sarah Palin, on Hillary Clinton complaining about the media, March 2008)
